Evangelism and Renewal Advocates
Our ERAs are Ministers of the URC with more than 20 years experience of local church leadership.
They are available free of charge as a gift from GEAR, with a remit to help churches and individuals deepen their discipleship, experience spiritual renewal and engage in effective evangelism
What's on offer?
Every church is different, and our ERAs work with the local church leadership to provide something that is suitable and helpful in each situation.
It does not matter how small - or large - the church happens to be. They are available as a resource for any URC that wants to invite them.
They are happy to help with any topics that deal with evangelism and renewal, customised to suit each local context. This may include introductory discussions about mission and the Holy Spirit, aspects of prayer, consideration of spiritual gifts or evangelistic strategies.
Their input might be something as simple as phone call, or as extensive as a church weekend retreat. Some of the events that have facilitated include:-
- Church Conferences or Weekends Away
- Elders' Days or Ministers' Fraternals
- Ignite workshops (click to read more)
- Workshops related to the URC's Vision 4 Life and Vision 2020
They do this through personal involvement and by involving others who are willing to invest time and effort to equip, enthuse, pray and participate in this ministry.
We invite you to get in touch so we can talk, pray, dream some dreams and explore possibilities together.
